Sunpartner in the Top 100 Global Cleantech Companies for 2014
Each year, Global Cleantech recognizes the 100 most innovative and revolutionary companies working towards a more sustainable world, across 17 sectors, including Energy Efficiency, Biofuels, and Biochemicals. Sunpartner Technologies was honored to be chosen in 2014 in the category of Energy Efficiency. This worldwide award comes just after being named the Nobel Sustainability Cleantech Company in 2013 and World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer in 2014.
The Cleantech Group’s mission is to connect corporate companies to sustainable innovation. For the last four years, they have researched the vast global cleantech community to recognize the companies they think are most likely to have a significant impact on markets in the next five to ten years.
A sign of the times: innovation in clean technologies is increasingly the focus of business intelligence and the number of cleantech companies is growing. In 2014, the first round of nominations identified over 11,000 companies throughout the world. After the stringent second round generated a short list of over 300 companies, the final evaluation resulted in the Top 100, including Sunpartner Technologies—thanks to our Wysips® solutions that transform any surface into a solar panel that can generate its own electricity.
Wysips® technologies enable devices to considerably reduce or even eliminate their need for energy from the grid, and/or fossil fuels, for a large number of products in many markets: Wysips® Crystal for screens, connected objects and billboards; Wysips® Glass for glazing (buildings and transportation); Wysips® Cameleon for opaque surfaces (signage, buildings and transportation); and Wysips® Connect (Li-FI).
“The Global Cleantech 100 represents the most inspiring array of entrepreneurs across the cleantech space that are at the forefront of innovation in clean technologies,” said Sheeraz Haji, Cleantech Group’s CEO, during the Global Cleantech 100 awards ceremony in Washington (USA) on October 6.
